WG engineers have been extremely busy over the past few weeks programming new air and barrel waves at Wavegarden facilities across the globe: Wave Park (South Korea), URBNSURF (Australia), Alaia Bay (Switzerland), and Praia da Grama (Brazil). The work was carried out with the expert assistance of top pro surfers Yago Dora, Luke Swanson, Reef Heazlewood, Leo Fioravanti, Victor Bernardo and Dion Agius. IT is rumoured the testing switch will also be flicked at Bristols The Wave very soon (TBC)

It’s not every day that some of the world’s best surfers across four continents can test new waves after the flick of a switch that changes a computer model, but that is what happened last week.

In the latest upgrade, WG have perfected 4 new air waves and several barrel waves.

The new air waves are ideal for straight airs, rotations, flips and alley-oops. A softer wave with less pop (force) has also been created for training purposes. The new innovative software program has allowed us to create these waves by altering their power, steepness, and angle.

Leo Fioravanti flares up on the new air waves at Alaia Bay, Switzerland. “Give me another session and I am sure I will be able to pull off a backflip.” he says…

Luke Swanson was one of the first surfers in the world to test out our new air waves. His feedback was instrumental in perfecting the run-in, air section and landing.

Reef is definitely one of the best air surfers in the world. His work ethic and repertoire of tricks is mind blowing.

Victor Bernardo arrived in Korea and got straight to work, landing huge airs and bringing a completely new approach to WG waves.

Yago Dora showcases his electrifying aerial game on the new air waves at Praia da Grama.

Pretty impressive tech…
